Eh, sorry...I'm crabby. I design sites for clients and I'd never do that unless a client asked for it and I failed to talk them out of it. From a usability standpoint I'm not a fan of that. I can click on "News" when and if I want to. If "News" is something everyone should be shown at a particular site, just put it up front. If I'm reading a page and it goes away without my input...that's an avoidable annoyance one can choose not to expose a potential customer to.

Sorry for the pedantry.
